and then i was out pressing my advantage, using every tax loophole but because i know those better than anything, we are going to change the tax code because i should not be able to get a 15% marginal rate when most americans are at 28 or 33. by the way, even though, yes, i was investing in switzerland and parked money in the bahamas, we need to close those loopholes as well because folks like me shouldn't be able to take advantage of that stuff when most americans cannot. if mitt romney just came out and admitted it and said yeah, i did all of this stuff but because i did it, i am embarrassed about it. it's shameful we have been able to have the system corrupted for the last years and i am going to change it. if he came out that way, my republican friend says and i agree, he would get some credibility because he would be acknowledging the truth and he would say, we need to fix this. instead, he is trying to run away from it and it's not helping him. he is digging a hole deeper and deeper. by the way, speaking of digging a hole deeper, wait until on the other
